Re: program to combine images and audio for youtube upload

Thanks. Got 2.1 installed on my LM box. Works like a charm.
I can't see how to delete the duplicate posts... old eyes?
I guess after a period of time, or after others have posted, the option is no longer available?

program to combine images and audio for youtube upload

I am looking for a free program to combine images with an audio file where I can add/adjust on a timeline.
Are there any open source totally free programs that will accomplish this? I found some "free" programs that then splash an advertising banner across the finished project.

Re: How to resuscitate a SSD from "initramfs"

VERY interesting! Mine is a Kingston V300 SSDNow as well (120GB)
Can the firmware be updated without wiping the drive? I have never performed this task before.
For Kingston "toolbox" it appears that only Windows is supported! None for iOs or Linux!!

Re: errors when updating

@minitux Followed your suggestions and rebooted 3x now and it seems to have resolved the issue. I will wait a day or 2 before marking this solved.

Re: errors when updating

@minitux
i am following karl's suggestion first as it doesn't require changing anything.
prefer to narrow things down and not change too many things as that could further muddy the issue.

Re: errors when updating

Yes, after I close the warning window about the end of life on earth, it will either bring up updates that I can install or simply state that the system is up to date.
